AlphaLab Trifield Meter -- 1 Meter

Reads electromagnetic and radiowave fields. The original TriField® Meter combines all the features needed for fast accurate measurements of electromagnetic fields. It independently measures electric field and magnetic field and is properly scaled to indicate the full magnitude of currents produced by each type of field inside a conductive body. As a result it "sees" much more than any other electromagnetic pollution meter. This meter is the only one which combines magnetic electric and radio/microwave detectors in one package so that the entire nonionizing electromagnetic spectrum is covered. In addition the magnetic setting and the electric setting measure true magnitude a feature found elsewhere only in more expensive meters. If you hold the meter in the center of a room and tip it to various angles the magnetic reading will stay approximately the same regardless of which way you tip or rotate it. The electric reading is similar although the presence of your body alters the actual electric field so readings will vary more. The radio/microwave setting reads the full power of radiowaves when the meter is pointed toward the source.

Very good meter
 April 4, 2010
"I think these meters are a bit over priced for what they are, but they definitely work well. With the tri-axis detectors, it makes it nice not having to tilt the meter around to find the EM field strength when one is present.
The meter is well built and sturdy. Very good construction. I'd say these probably fall into the pro/consumer category of equipment."

Great buy

"I could have gotten the bells and whistles with the purchase, but would have been upwards of $200. This machine doesn't have those extras, but I don't need them. Worth the money!"

Good but expensive
 July 18, 2009
"This meter was very helpful in finding EM "hot spots" in my house. The biggest "offender" is my dishwasher, which I now unplug while working in the kitchen. Also,it was unbelievable to see the strength of the microwave field while in use.
This meter helped me appreciate the solid construction of my home. I am relieved that my children are growing up in a sound environment.
The meter really deserves 5 stars, but I found the price steep. However, at the end of the day, it was worth it for the peace of mind.

Every home needs this tool!
 June 14, 2009
"The trifield meter is one tool every household should have. The fact is, the only way to minimize the on-going danger of emf fields is to measure them. Our homes are the only place we "can" minimize the dangers of electromagnetic fields."

Excelent 'Visual' Education
 March 19, 2009
"Using this meter brings the 'visual education' we all need to 'see' when it comes to EMF, Electrical, Radio/Microwave dangers. Taught my children (and others) what they are exposing themselves to with ANY cordless phone or wireless devices. 'Invisible Dangers' are brought into 'View' using this meter! I've found many 'dangerous levels' in places I never would have thought of, like the passenger seat in my car; it has a sensor to detect a passenger sitting there to activate/deactivate the passenger Air Bag; extremely high levels emitted from the seat! Carried it through the hospital, with amazing results!"

Very good product; an eye-opener
 May 11, 2008
"Helped identify sources of EMF and RF. Allowed me to reposition and discard appliances to minimize exposure. I was especially shocked to see the amount of microwave radiation emanating from my microwave oven. Now I go into another room when I use it. Likewise my wife's cell phone. Everyone should have one of these."
